To Have and Hold On To

Blog_ToHaveAndToHold

It was such a cliché.  We met at a bar.  And I’m so glad we did, because this year I celebrated my one year anniversary with my husband Bill.  It was a perfect day, and I married my best friend.  No matter what happens in our future, I know I’ll always be thankful for that happy day and the wonderful year that has followed.  We got a puppy, painted our kitchen, landscaped our yard and made some wonderful memories along the way.  Memories I know 20 years from now I’ll want to look back on; so I’m keeping them safe in a Waterproof Fire-resistant File to share with our family as it ages and grows for years to come.

So what have I put in my file?  Here’s just a couple of little things I’m keeping safe.

The Cake Topper from Our Wedding-  It may sound cheesy, but I really love these little birds that topped our wedding.  It was such a beautiful, fun day and this little item reminds me of the sunshine and laughter that encompassed it!

The CD of Photo’s from Our Wedding-  We wanted to capture all the special moments of our big day, so we had a photo album made.  I love sharing it with everyone so it’s always out, but I keep an extra copy on a CD in our safe. That way if anything ever happens, I know our photos and memories are protected.

Important Documents- It’s not exciting but it is nice to know that our marriage certificate is safe and on hand when I need it.  I also put my old driver’s license and social security card in there.  I could have shredded these I guess, but it didn’t feel right to throw them out.  They may be the last things with my old name on them,

Our Puppy’s First Collar- Brandi isn’t just our dog, she’s a special member of our family.  In the last six months, she’s also gone from just 10 lbs of cuddles to 76 lbs of crazy! She outgrew her collar in what seemed like moments, but I kept this little memento as a reminder of the little bundle that rode home on my lap.

I know I’ll have lots more to add as the years go on, but these little tokens are just some of things I hold close to my heart and keep inside my safe.

Peace of Mind for a Lifetime

Final Blog

At every point in our life we are creating memories that we wish we could bottle up and save.  Whether you’re moving into a new home, getting married, expecting a baby or even a grandchild, now is the perfect time to afford yourself a little peace of mind.   The things that matter most, they aren’t just hard to replace, they’re impossible.  From the drawing your child did just to say I love you or the picture of you in front of your new house, these are the memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.  Make sure they’re safe to share with generations to come by storing them in a SentrySafe chest or file.

It’s peace of mind for a lifetime.
